The Seattle Memorial Stadium shows (Jerry 1993 and GD 1994-95) were all excellent. (Be sure to check out the 93 Jerry show on Sugarmegs.org [1993-08-07 and cosmic co-ink-i-dink, the anniversary of Alpine 8/7/82!], plus 5/13/94 on the Archive!!)
On the front rail for the whole show 5/24/95.
I Want To Tell was served up on a plate by JG - didn't realize it at the time. Yes.
During Estimated, Jerry locked eyes and "asked" what I wanted to hear next - "Any requests?" - had no answer, I was lost - shrugged, mouthed "I don't know." Guessing anything "within reason" was in play, and reason was broadly defined . . . . Missed it.

The Truckin'->Terrapin is from Cal Expo 5/5/91.
Nice jam between the two as well, with Spanish hints...
And in my opinion this is FAR AND AWAY the greatest late 90's performance of Estimated Prophet. Jerry is wide awake and on FIRE. Hard to believe it's from 1995!!!!

The sound is great.
Jerry is not blazing, but they are playing very well as a group, and Bob is not doing his over-dramatic over-singing schtick.
For 95, this is great.
The selection is small. But we miss some of the bad 90's song selection. I do wish Jerry had left the Beatles alone, but you can't have everything.

But it has to be noted...
...that this was probably the best played estimated Prophet of 1995. As I have written elsewhere, it comes as a total surprise after a good half hour of somnambulance by Garcia. I was at this show and have written that it took my by total surprise. Sadly it was the only part of the show that came close to shining (indeed the whole run no matter what people say about the third afternoon).
It is nice to hear a SBD of this show anyway as I have often wondered what that might be like in terms of hearing the rest of the band. I have come to the conclusion that Jerry would take his drugs that would then put him halfway to coma-land and that during the course of the show they would wear off enough that he would suddenly perk up and play better. How else to explain his massacre of "I Want To Tell You", a song that, for him, would normally be a walk in the park (you don't have to be a rocket scientist to remember the words either) and then his sudden rally during Esto?
It is very sad. It's a pity that the first set is missing here as the "Bird Song" was also quite good. Another instance of it being far enough in the set from his taking drugs that he plays with some clarity.
Needless to say the two songs following "Estimated" are from a different show. This is a strange upload. I agree that it's probably an episode of David Gans' radio show.

The sound is definitely great. But it is so difficult to listen latter-day versions of classics like Estimated Prophet. Ugh...it is so hard. With respect to Estimated Prophet, the best version was the first ever played 2-26-77, of course in my opinion.
